Can't find this online anywhere, but I've heard from more than one source that Rick Lyman has taken over Patricia Cohen's job as theater editor at The New York Times. Not sure what this will mean for the Times' theater coverage, but I can say that Patti was unfailingly gracious and responsive in all her dealings with me, which began even before I moved East in the summer of 2005, and that what rewrites she did on my features were always improvements. If that sounds like brown-nosing, so be it--after all, it's now too late to do me any good, except perhaps karmically.
